Some of you may not be aware, but on the 12th of April for U.S. players (the 13th of April for E.U players), we’ll see the long-awaited return of the World Event: Legion Timewalking. This event was an extremely profitable market last time due to the re-emergence/release of the Mage Tower.
When the event opened for the first time, I managed to earn 10 million gold over the first seven days. Sadly, if you’ve frequently been monitoring Wowhead (or alternative websites), you’ll be aware that the Mage Tower has a significant change at the end of this month.
You’ll find the entrance to Dragon Soul within the Caverns of Time. Take the portal to Caverns of Time from either Stormwind (Alliance), or Orgrimmar (Horde). Fly down into the Caverns, and check your map for the Raid entrance.
Limitations to Raid Lockout:
It’s important to remember that 10/25 man and Normal/Heroic Raids share the same lockout. However, you’ll find Auridormi at the entrance; she will assist you in queuing for Looking for Raid (LFR) solo!
LFR doesn’t share the same lockout, so remember to do both to increase your chances of loot and gems.
How to Acquire Cataclysm Epic Gems:
Upon defeating each boss within Dragon Soul, you’ll receive a small amount of gold, some loot, and upon defeating Deathwing in the final encounter, you also have a chance at a mount.
Once you’ve obtained your Motes and Essence, seek out Dasnurimi within Dragon Soul, he can be found on the ground level of Wyrmrest Tower, coordinates [49.60].
How to defeat the Spine of Deathwing?
Many players struggle to defeat the Spine of Deathwing encounter due to the fight’s mechanics. But, fear not, here’s an excellent video from Haydes Realm, outlining how easy this is if you follow the advice closely!
As always, please do visit Haydes Realm’sYoutube, leave a like, and comment if you found their video helpful. Don’t forget to subscribe for future content!
I can’t stress this enough, don’t forget to run LFR! With the price of Queen’s Garnets selling for between 5-10k each, this raid can be a very profitable part of your farming routine. If you have alts that can clear this raid, you have a greater chance of earning a lot more gold.

What is Malevolent, Dreadful, and Contender Transmog?
If you played World of Warcraft during Mists of Pandaria (MoP), you would be familiar with this crafted gear from Leatherworking, Blacksmithing, and Tailoring. These items were called Crafted Malevolent, Crafted Dreadful, and Contender’s gear. During MoP, these crafts were very valuable, thanks to PvP content and their bonus sets. Even to this day, they still hold a reasonable valuation and offer me a steady income.

Leatherworking has the best return when operating in this market, as it crafts both Leather and Mail items. However, it comes at a price, as you’ll need to learn more recipes than the other two professions. The Malevolent and Dreadful recipes are locked behind a specific craft that has a daily cooldown; meaning you need to craft an epic material to discover a new recipe for your profession. Below is a summary of the crafts necessary for each profession.

Crafting Your Malevolent, Dreadful, and Contender Transmog!
Once you’ve learned your recipes, start crafting your gear. The materials needed to craft the items are straightforward and easy to acquire, either from farming or purchasing from the Auction House. I urge you to check TheUndermineJournal (TUJ); this will give you an idea of your materials and crafts’ value and ultimately help you decide whether it’s beneficial to farm or purchase your materials.

The Benefits of Malevolent, Dreadful, and Contender Transmog:
What makes this gear valuable is the transmog aspect; they have some excellent skins. With the introduction of Shadowlands and the Relic of the Past, this gear can help players level efficiently. The relic can manipulate the item’s ilvl and level requirement, meaning this has some value for lower-level players. The bonus for equipping 2 or 4 pieces may be beneficial.
Here are some of my previous sales to show the amount of gold you can make from this market.
Update – The Mage Tower:
Following the release of the new World Event: Legion Timewalking and the reintroduction of the Mage Tower, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s gear is in high demand. When these items are applied with either a Relic IV or Relic V, they scale extremely well, due to the gem sockets and enchants that can be applied.
As with the increase in the value of these crafts, you’ll notice that the materials are in high demand too; and have tripled in value on some realms. If you’re able to farm materials during this event, I’d suggest checking out my new blog post, covering the materials needed during the World Event: Legion Timewalking and the Mage Tower.
